Praise for Wendy Holden: Pacy pastiche of city dwellers 'gone country'... packed with puns... Holden has produced an entertaining novel, bursting with a large cast of Diblyesque characters, which will no doubt delight fans of her two previous books
Daily Mail
On gloomy days, Wendy Holden's novels should be handed round like aspirin. Her new book, Pastures Nouveaux, is guaranteed to bring a smile even to the baddest of moods... The hills are alive with the sound of high jinks in this laugh-a-minute romp'
B Magazine
Clever, naughty and basically affectionate and good-natured... a comic romp engineered with aplomb and dash... will have fans glued
Sunday Times
A very modern romantic comedy... her cultural references are spot-on... an amusing romp through village life
Mail on Sunday
A light-hearted rustic romp
A pun-packed romp
A hilariously outrageous romp that takes the gloss off those countryside daydreams
Writing good comic fiction isn't as easy as it looks but Holden has pulled it off yet again
The Times
Fantastic fun... witty, high-speed satire, and I've lost count of the number of times I've laughed out loud. Hugely enjoyable
Marian Keyes
Wendy's writing is brilliant
